Nursing of old people is one of the core work fields of Diakonie. The demand is growing due to the changing age structure.
Elderly care is done in different ways. The offers made by the open old people´s help keeps the elderly from isolation. These offers create space and time for questions of meaning and faith. The definition of outpatient, day care and inpatient geriatric care is to medically nurse old people in an outpatient way at home, in assisted living groups (day care) or in homes (stationary). Working with old people, an offer many communities provide, serves the support and integration of elderly citizens.
The dignity of men is always at the center of diaconal offers for old people and their relatives. In our Diakonie institutions we care for the people in a holistic way, respecting the person´s dignity.
